It’s not uncommon to have stubborn areas of fat that you just can’t seem to get rid of despite exercise and dietary changes. Perhaps you’re considering having a non-surgical body sculpting treatment but not sure which one works better.
There are body sculpting methods that freeze fat cells, and other sculpting technologies like radiofrequency and ultrasound energy that provide a way to target and reshape areas such as your abdomen, upper arms and thighs.
Are Results Permanent? Is Non-Surgical Body Sculpting Safe?
Non-surgical body sculpting procedure are minimally invasive treatments with mild side effects. Although, you should go over your medical history with your GP and discuss which treatment options are best for you. All body contouring procedures provide the best results for individuals with a normal body mass index.
Will Non-Surgical Techniques Give Similar Results as Liposuction?
The truth is that non-surgical techniques will never be able to provide you with the same results that a surgical procedure can. Liposuction eliminates approximately ten times more fat than these non-invasive body sculpting treatments eliminate. Non-surgical body contouring treatments work by destroying the amount of fat you can pinch.
How Does Non-Surgical Body Sculpting Work?
Non-surgical body sculpting procedures work primarily the same way. They work to target and destroy fat cells, which your body will filter out gradually over time, usually within three to four months.
Cold treatments (Cryolipolysis)
Cold treatments use freezing temperatures to kill fat cells but not cold enough to cause any damage to the skin. A special device is used to pull portions of the skin up through suctioning, then cools the skin to destroy the fat cells under the skin for a short amount of time.
Cryolipolysis is used on several parts of the body including the arms, chin, thighs, love handles and abdomen. For more information on the Cryolipolysis process visit the experts at Dr Saras & Co at any of Dr Saras freeze fat cosmetic clinics located in Double Bay, Miranda or Annandale.
Ultrasound energy treatment uses ultrasound energy to break down fat. This type of treatment is the most time-intensive and takes around one hour per session. It uses a mechanical vibration that break down and destroys fat. There is no discomfort with this procedure, and it works only on the abdomen region.
Radio frequency energy devices form heat and then destroy fat cells. During treatment, you may feel a warm sensation. The radiofrequency device accurately pinpoints water in the cells, so its essential to make sure that your body is hydrated before the procedure.
